If you need gators for your moat I could most likely hook you up with a few!
And what is water without skeeters? Can hook you up with a bunch of them also! How about a combination of the two?

The -37f for 2 weeks in feb kills them all.

Unless he heats the moat......

I appreciate the suggestions, but I have my heart set on a fire breathing dragon. What’s the sense of a castle with towers, a moat and a drawbridge, without the fire breathing dragon, that’s like a PB&J sandwich without the bread.

Moat freezes, leaving you vulnerable for 4 months....

Try filling it with ethylene glycol (or booze)

The fire breathing dragon is a boilermans dream. With the dragon, Platy can fire the boilers to heat the castle, too.
